    So I can't get Hans to load my save file in Animal Crossing New Leaf (Welcome to Amiibo update has been added) and was wondering if anyone had a fix?

    HANS does not load game updates, I believe. HANS only loads the base game. Someone else can correct me if I'm wrong on this.

    It loads the game itself, but acts as if there is no save data as far as I can tell. No idea if it's fixable or not.

    Because it's not reading the update. And you can't play the updated save file if HANS can't access it.

    It's unfortunate that HANS doesn't read game updates, but HANS has gotten considerably worse as time and as 3DS updates are released. Some game can't even be loaded through HANS anymore.

    I'm curious though, why do you need to launch ACNL through HANS?

    I was changing textures of some of the characters. I'm a bit of a noob so unsure, but hans is the only way I know to do that~

    An easier way to test ROM/textures hacks would be with the NTR method on a custom-firmware'd 3DS. If you have 11.2 or lower, follow http://3ds.guide to get your 3DS set up with custom firmware. If you have 11.3, HANS would be the only way to go as of now.

    Thanks for letting me know! I got CFW and NTR installed but now I gotta figure out how to use it for textures >.<

    Near N3DS
    Use the latest Luma3DS. Currently 7.0.3. LayeredFS support should help you.
